Default Download code

Hi there,

I just bought the book with no programming experience :) Hopefully I can ramp up really quick. On the other hands, I just found out that some of the chapter are missing from download codes.

Any reason in particular.

Your toughs, are very welcome.

Thanks,
GF

The "download codes" are in the Resources directory. You should have every chapter listed there. Is that where you are missing chapters?

Can you be a little more specific; when you download the source code you will have two folders. One called Source that contains that source code for each chapter and one called Resources, which contains additional resources that some chapter need.

The Resources folder will not contain a folder for each chapter, because once a chapter introduces these resources and you add them to your site, you won't need to add them again. You will only find chapter folders that indicate the chapter a particular resource was first introduced in.

I hope this helps.

Guys, do you think this book is really helpful for someone who not have programming experience.

Thanks.

In my opinion, one should learn the programming language first, either VB or c#. Perhaps others will disagree. VB is very simple to learn. You can go to a community college or teach yourself from a good book. It is true that all the programming language is shown in the book, but a better understanding of the language itself would be very helpful.

Once you know minimal VB, this book will take you the rest of the way to creating applications and web sites.

Walbalooshi - I have not used the Resource folder and I'm well into the book. I have used the Source folder to check my work, especially if I have an unexpected error. I have also used the Source folder to copy and paste lengthy code. Can you give me a specific example of how or when the Resource folder would be used? Am I missing something in my code because something was contained in the Resource folder that was missing from the Source folder?

Thanks.

The truth is that because of the way the source folder is organized - it contains the full web site - you really don't need to use the resources folder. If you look you will find things like images, css, jQuery scripts, but they are already integrated into the web sites located in the Sources folder.

It was just that you mentioned that some chapters are missing from the downloaded code and the only place I see this is within the Resources folder where it only contains 8 chapter folders.

Thanks for the explanation. (

By the way, I asked the question about not using the Resource file at all. gfranco asked the original question about chapters missing.)
